A Bit Of San Franciso

Arrived In Pasadena This Week...

 

San Francisco Here I Come

 

 

 

A Bit Of San Francisco Arrived In Pasadena This Week... After some time away I ventured to my post office box this week and in it among junk mail and assorted  miscellany, I saw a hand-written envelope with a San Francisco postmark. 

 

Inside was a nice note from Lottie Kendall with congratulations  for being the ActiveRain member who guessed the date closest to when Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP  reached that 2,000,000 point milestone on this platform. 

 

Also inside the envelope was a  coaster with images of many of the city's points of interest from local artisan Tomoko Maruyama.   It reminds me of Lottie's posts where she has shared the colors of San Francisco

 

The wonderful architecture.  The interesting sights.  And so much more.  Lottie's knowledge and love of her city come through loud and clear.  Thank you, Lottie and congratulations again to Patricia on reaching and surpassing this ActiveRain milestone. 

 

The image in this post is from canstockphoto.com.  Lottie's love and appreciation of San Francisco is clearly evident but my photography skills are quite limited hence the image of San Francisco in this post.

Kathy Streib - that insider view is what makes being locally focused so important.

Sharon Lee - there's much to appreciate about Lottie Kendall as a person, as representative of/for San Francisco and of ActiveRain.   We are fortunate to have many such members here.

Michael Jacobs - I can only imagine how thrilled you must have been on the day Lottie Kendall 's "hand-written envelope with a San Francisco postmark" arrived! 

Lottie is a Class Act and you are too! Meeting the two of you here on ActiveRain has been a blessing and a gift. Lottie is a woman of her word and I'm glad you were the winner for guessing when I'd go over the 2M milestone. It couldn't have happened to a nicer person.

The coaster with "images of many of the city's points of interest from local artisan "Tomoko Maruyam" is beautiful!!! The attention to details in bold and beautiful soft colors brings out the happiness we all need so badly. 

Whether that was a subliminal message from the Artist and/or Lottie, I'm not surprised. We need more people like Tomoko Maruyam, Lottie, and yourself to brighten things up when others least expect it. In my opinion, that's what making a difference is truly all about!

Thank you for mentioning me in your post. I couldn't have achieved my milestone without Lottie's help and all the people who supported me in this quest. I am grateful for your congratulations too, Michael!

What I love about your writing style is that it's so authentic, i.e., your acknowledgment  of Lottie's "knowledge and love of her city" it really did "come through loud and clear!"

May that coaster from SF cause you to smile each time you see it with a fond remembrance of the goodness that comes forth from all the special people on ActiveRain whose hearts are always in the right place and follows through with their promises. 

Patricia

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP - it is always nice to see a hand-written envelope received in the sea of mailings of every kind.  While my photo skills couldn't capture the actual coaster the image I found and included in this post evokes that spirit of the gesture and the city.  We are quite fortunate to be members of ActiveRain for so many reasons.  Here's to more celebrating. Just because...

Oh, I love Lottie! What a wonderful, thoughtful gift and I'm sure you get the sense that San Fran is her passion and she thoroughly enjoyed sharing a bit of her beautiful city with you. 

I love the coaster with the flavors of San Francisco. I'll have to look for the local artisan, Tomoko Maruyam, if I am able to make it to NAR/CRS/AR Meet-Up in November!

Congratulations on guessing the date too - and to Patricia for hitting that major milestone!
